Save The Predators Inc. Buying $20,000 of Tickets Today!!!
Save The Predators, Inc., a local fund-raising organization, will this afternoon purchase $20,000 worth of Predators tickets for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee.
The organization began as savethepredators.com, a grassroots effort that over the past several weeks has raised its money via silent auctions of donated items, Predators T-shirt sales and entertainment events.
After organizing things with BB/BS it was requested by the organization to buy 4 great seats as season tickets so they could entertain potential donators. And the rest would be bought in large blocks for weekday games.
They have been working with the sales team as well with the Predators, too identify what weekday games they should purchase the tickets for. In other words the games that will be low crowds. All this was thought through on the front end and Jim and Wendy are aware just like all of us the need to buy the weekday tickets.
Here is a breakdown of the tickets purchased today as provided by HazeltheRabbit at the NP.com messageboards:
